Film group resources

A place to collect website links, such as for film review sites, book titles, relevant podcasts.
September 2022 Ministry Fair “Faith and Film” flyer.

For now, only a few sources with some relevance.
To recall or discover titles: Various lists of top 10, 50 or 100, “All Time” (now over a century) or by genres or by recent year or decade. The oldest All Time lists may be from Variety in US, and so bias toward American films, and Sight and Sound (BFI) for the UK, with more preference for Brit and EU films, every 10 years since 1952, latest December 2022.
A list of lists includes Roger Ebert’s all time top ten, crafted in his fine style in 2012, the year before his Tree of Life was transplanted.
